The Project

The Center for Veterans Advancement helps veterans and their families avoid or escape homelessness and poverty. We represent indigent veterans in their claims for benefits before the Department of Veterans Affairs, Board of Veterans Appeals, and U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. The CVA also provides training in VA representation and assists veterans in obtaining housing, employment, medical care, and supportive services. Finally, we advocate for systemic policy change that will help at-risk veterans to lead healthy, stable lives.
